GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS,
Neymar is reportedly close to signing a new four-year Paris Saint-Germain contract.
Get French Football News claims the Brazilian forward, 28, is ready to commit his long-term future to the French giants despite being linked with a return to Barcelona.
And talk intensified after he entered the final 18 months of his PSG contract.
But Neymar is now set to extend his deal from 2022 to 2026.
That would see him remain at PSG until he was 33 years old, effectively committing himself for the remainder of his top level career.
Meanwhile, Manchester United must ‘sell Paul Pogba now’ or they will lose him for free, according to the midfielder’s brother Mathias.
Mathias, 30 – who plays for Spanish side Racing Murcia – appeared on Spanish TV show El Chiringuito on Tuesday morning and stirred the pot again.
He said: “He has a year left on his contract. I don’t know [if he will stay until then]. I can’t help you right now.
“The only thing I can say is if United want money, they have to sell him now. That’s the only thing I can say. If not, he’ll go for free.
“I haven’t heard anything about him renewing his contract.”
And finally, Scott Parker was pleased to bring in Josh Maja but admitted Fulham lost out to Everton to sign Josh King.
He said: “I think, like all deadline days, they do bring a little bit of drama and I’m certainly very pleased with the signing of Josh.
“I think he probably falls into the sort of business we’ve done this year in terms of young talent, big potential, someone we can develop.
“He’s a very good finisher and I think it’s clear we need to try and strengthen in that area. We’ve got Aleks (Mitrovic) in our squad but other than that, no real recognised centre-forwards, so I’m very pleased with that.
“Hopefully Josh comes in and we can really push him on. He scored a lot of goals at Sunderland, so that’s the main thing.
“We tried to do some other bits. Josh King was one that was documented and we tried, we pushed and obviously competing with Everton was a challenge and he decided to go there and we understand that.”
